Meet Your Guide Outside the Royal Palace

Your day begins at Plaza Isabel II in front of the Royal Opera House, just a block away from the Palace. Meet your guide, learn the itinerary for the day, and head to the Royal Palace.

1,000+ Year History of the Palace

Skip the line and enter the 18th-century palace built by the Spanish branch of the Bourbon family. Climb the elaborate stairs towards the Throne Room where the business of royalty has occurred for nearly 300 years.

Prior to the Bourbon reign, the palace had been home to a 9th-century mosque. Your guide will describe the Moorish influence on the city's culture, history, and the land where the palace was built.

Works by Goya, Caravaggio and More

As kings and queens are known to do, Madrid's royal family has gathered a major collection of art and artifacts. With Rococo frescoes by the Venetian Tiepolo, the Italian influence in the palace is clear. Other Italian masters are present throughout the residence, most famously with Caravaggio's Salome with the Head of Saint John the Baptist.

If you also visit the Prado Museum while in Madrid, you'll be quite familiar with the impactful works of Francisco Goya. At the palace, you can examine Goya's portraits such as Charles IV in Hunting Dress and María Luisa Wearing a Mantilla.

This famous Spanish painter eventually became the Primer Pintor de Cámara (Premier Court Painter), which was the highest rank in the courts. Your guide will explain how Napoleon led Goya to change his style, world view, and sanity.

Flamenco Show with Traditional Spanish Dinner

After the palace tour, you will have some time to explore Madrid before your evening flamenco show with dinner. Your guide will ensure you have the correct voucher for the night and bid you a great rest of your trip.

Head to the Torres Bermejas Tablao and grab your seat. We recommend arriving at 6:30 pm to get the perfect seat for the 7:00 pm show. Sit back, relax, and enjoy authentic Spanish fun. Taste delicious tapas and local wines for an unforgettable finish to the perfect tour in Madrid.
